Our purpose is to bring plant potential to life

We invest and innovate to transform the way crops are grown and protected to bring about positive, lasting change in agriculture.

We help farmers manage a complex set of challenges from nature and society. Our approach is to ensure that everybody wins: that farmers are prosperous, agriculture becomes more sustainable, and consumers have safe, healthy and nutritious food.

We all have to eat

By improving crop productivity and making farming more efficient, we enable growers to provide healthy, high quality food safely and sustainably.

Our ambition is to provide enough, better food while protecting the environment

Syngenta plays a vital role in enabling the food chain to feed the world safely and take care of our planet.

Our ambition is to be the most collaborative and trusted team in agriculture, providing leading seeds and crop protection innovations to enhance the prosperity of farmers, wherever they are.

All our employees around the world – every single one – has a role to play in helping farmers to sustainably feed the world

The Good Growth Plan

Our new Good Growth Plan puts the urgent fight against climate change and biodiversity loss at the heart of farming’s productive future and the global economic recovery. We have made 4 ambitious new global commitments to reduce agriculture’s carbon footprint and to help farmers deal with the extreme weather patterns caused by climate change.

We measure the difference we make and report on our progress each year. These achievements show how our company supports the Sustainable Development Goals.
